As usual, the Congressional Art Awards at Montserrat College of Art was packed with amazing high school artwork. The awards reception was held this past Saturday at the 301 Cabot Street Gallery in Beverly. I was honored to share in my students’ recognition of excellence with Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Bernard. Also in attendance at the reception was Congressman Seth Moulton.
It was an honor to meet a Congressman Moulton who is a Salem native. As a Marine, he served four tours in Iraq and preceding that spent some time as a video and photojournalist in Afghanistan. He spoke about his appreciation for the arts and his support of artists of all ages.
A special congratulations goes out to Kenzie Iriana and Laura Wagner who received Best of School and Honor Mention Awards, respectively.
